I took my bike out in the wet twice this year and once at Christmas so it's not seen a lot of bad weather. After each trip I hosed it down to get the crap/salt off.
Unfortunately the stickers have lifted on the mudguard/hugger thingy. The back of the engine is a furry mess and the shock is the most inaccessible god awful thing to get at to clean.
I've been looking at these things.

Anyone use one? Opinions?

Actually....I am "The Batman" anyway!!!

I've got one on ttx, works heaps good. I had to change the spring a few times and each time I've looked inside its pretty much spotless. Just remember to lightly WD40 the sock and your shock before putting it on, it'll keep the shock clean and help rotating the sock into the right position easier.

I keep meaning to buy one. R&G are a quality brand. I will get one when I upgrade my spring later this year.

I've seen the cheaper "shock-sox" on ebay before? i've seen a few but ran across these even though they're not the same brand you mentioned. 49be7

Take a risk, and you may lose. Never risk, and you will always lose.
